Afghanistan, Not Snotty And Testicles.
The usual navel gazing by much of the MSM this weekend is on the fluff of UK politics and the Westminster bubble of fur. In fairness the Sunday Times has woken up to the inevitable winning of this war by The Taliban.
This professional article makes a superior fist of the debate than I am capable of doing. However the stark realities of this pathetic invasion were obvious from day one. Centuries of invasion and plunder have always failed to defeat the Tribal unities of this Country. Some suggest that only fighting and war keeps these people happy. However they have had precious few years to demonstrate such a meme.
I read today that this conflict is costing the USA alone some $10billion a MONTH! It also reminds me of my original theory on 9/11 that as atrocious as it was as an act of terrorism the real aim was to severely damage the West's most powerful asset, wealth.
I would suggest that the collapse of the Global banking ponzi schemes is directly linked to those twin towers symbolic destruction. That coupled with a Bilderberger elite to whom money is everything.
We will have to deal with talks with this "enemy" it is already happening. Trouble is it is ten plus years, billions if not trillions of dollars too late. The unnecessary deaths of ordinary people is, of course, cheap in our leaders' minds. I doubt any of them ever lose sleep over the casualties of their wars but only over any loss of money and power.
Whether blogging is just an observational vehicle or a future powerful check on the vainglory of idiots, I don't know. Only time will tell if the deaf mutes of power are ever able to notice the dog muck on their shoes.
